It took concrete shape for the first time at the first East Asia Summit (EAS) meeting in December 2005, which was organised ‘as an ASEAN+6 summit rather than as an ASEAN+3 affair’ (Urata 2008, 2). The ASEAN+6 proposal revealed Japan’s interest in preventing China from playing the leadership role both in the growth of Asian regionalism and in supplying ‘governance structures for the region’ (Solis 2005, 4) as well as in blocking it from ‘replacing Japan as the head of Asia’s economic order’ (Rathus 2011, 70).
As Yoshimatsu notes in Chapter 8, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made a formal proposal for such a 16-nation EPA at the second EAS meeting in January 2007. This was the only grouping in which Japan was prepared to accept China’s participation (Rathus 2011). The Abe government’s commencement of bilateral FTA negotiations with Australia in 2007 represented yet another manifestation of competition between Japan and China to conclude FTAs with other Asia-Pacific countries. Japan pushed the idea of an Australia-Japan FTA more urgently in the light of China’s pro-active approach to developing economic relations with Australia and the agreement between China and Australia to commence FTA negotiations.
A pattern in which the United States threatened retaliation against the Japanese economy and Japan responded with concessions to American trade demands became well established. It was particularly evident during the 1970s, 1980s and first half of the 1990s when the relationship was characterised by high levels of trade friction owing to the blowout in Japan’s trade surplus with the United States (Cooper 2014; George Mulgan 1997). This provided tremendous impetus for American pressure to open Japanese markets across a range of sectors (George Mulgan 1997).
